The five-year-old daughter of Mr. And Mrs. Will Haley, living in the Hopewell district, 
died Thursday from the effects of being burned.  The little girl was trying to put out a 
fire on the carpet that was caused by a piece of burning wood falling out of the stove, and 
her dress caught fire and she was soon enveloped in flames.  She lived but a few hours and 
was in terrible agony.  The funeral was held at Hopewell Church Friday afternoon.
